Timetable 2019

What's changed?

We have introduced the biggest timetable change on the Great Western Railway network since 1976, bringing faster, more frequent services with thousands more seats across the region.

Around three-quarters of journey times are now different. The timetable introduced on 15 December 2019 is now providing new services and has changed old ones as part of the improvements.

We have done our best to ensure customers aren’t caught out – particularly customers who travel with us regularly and are used to travelling on a specific service.

In particular:

Trains now arrive and depart at different times – there are more trains, with more seats, but to allow the new timetable to work train times are now different.

Trains may not stop at your station – journeys are now faster, but with the introduction of new services, they won't always stop at the places frequent travellers were used to.

What improvements are there?

Most places on the Great Western Railway network are now served by new or more modern trains than they were just a couple of years ago.

The new timetable has seen the introduction of 43 more high-speed services (Long-distance) every weekday – an increase of 19%, and almost 29% from May 2019.

What should I do?

It might seem at a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but these things creep up on us far too quickly and we want to make sure customers know what the changes could mean for them to avoid getting caught out. Over the coming months we will be publishing more information about the new timetable and how journeys will be changing.
